Ep. 21-Rick Gentry: One Size Doesn't Fit All

Local governments often know best when it comes to housing solutions for their community says says Rick Gentry, the president and CEO of the San Diego Housing Commission. He oversees a budget of over $40 million dedicated to helping families both find, and often keep, their housing. He argues that solutions must be tailored to the needs for each area, as San Diego issues may be different from other communities.

San Diego has been a model for tackling homelessness, with programs that focus finding housing as quickly as possible and intervening to keep others from being put out. It’s why he says flexibility, and understanding that one size doesn't fit all, are key to building housing crisis solutions.
